Masterson, Ronnie (1926 - 2014)
A scene from the RTÉ Television play 'Roma', during filming in Kilkenny in March 1979. The scene is taking place in a classroom; Jacinta Martin, as Maria, is sitting first left, while Ronnie Masterson is standing nearby, dressed as a nun.
'Roma' was adapted by Eugene McCabe from his own short story. It was set in a small Irish town with the action centred around Maria, the teenage daughter of the Italians who run the local fish and chip shop. 'Roma' was broadcast on 29 November 1979, as part of RTÉ 1's 'Thursday Play Date' series. Stills from this shoot were used to illustrate the accompanying RTÉ Guide article, published on 23 November 1979.
